A second cabinet minister has been removed from the provincial cabinet and Liberal caucus in as many weeks.

Premier Dwight Ball revealed Monday he had received complaints about Education Minister Dale Kirby. Kirby has been removed from cabinet and caucus, just as former municipal affairs minister Eddie Joyce was the week before.

The premier said the complaints were not physical or sexual in nature. The commissioner for legislative standards will conduct a review.

Advanced Education Minister Al Hawkins will fill in as education minister.
